Paris is known for climate change. Its winters, when it drizzles; its summers, when it sizzles; and its Climate Accords that, thanks to in good measure to American leadership, all the nations of the world signed onto except Syria and Nicaragua . . . the latter because they felt it was too weak.

In the current New York:
The differences of course are many. For starters, Nixon actually wanted the job, won it by the largest margin in history, and was both qualified and prepared to fill it — a brilliant student of history who’d been, among other things, […]
THE POLITICAL CRIME OF THE CENTURY
Just 26% of Republicans believe that Russia interfered in the Presidential election. That compares with 78% of Democrats, 53% of independents — and 100% of America’s 17 intelligence agencies.

Our commander-in-chief doesn’t believe it and is doing nothing about […]
Sorry. Been busy raising money for the party that “believes in” climate change and a higher minimum wage and better relations with Cuba; and health care for all rather than tax cuts for billionaires, and allowing the refinancing of federal student loans at today’s low rates.
